Genoa--GEN GEN is an application-generator that greatly simplifies the task of creating analysis tools for the C language. Analysis tools are specified in a high-level domain-specific language (DSL) that is designed to facilitate the task of specifying C analysis tools.
GEN is based on Cfront, the original C to C language translator developed by Bjarne Stroustrup, and GENOA, a language-independent parse-tree querying framework. It was originally developed at AT&T Bell Laboratories (now Lucent Technologies/Bell Laboratories) by Prem Devanbu (now at University of California, Davis) and Laura Eaves. Thanks to Lucent Technologies/Bell Labs innovations, it is now available for free download.
(Aria is a research prototype created by Prem Devanbu, David Rosenblum and Alex Wolf; the GEN tool has similar features. )
Several tools have been created with GEN , and come with the package; these can both be used directly, and as a springboard for other applications:
